BEST KEEP THE MUSIC GOING

Neighbors — who clearly don’t understand the concept of a vibrant downtown — lobbed one sound complaint after another at The Amsterdam (which closed in June of 2016), but we’re glad that the Independent brought some form of tunage back to the block in the form of regular DJ nights and pop-up record shops. facebook.com/pg/IndependentBarStPete 1049 Central Ave., St. Petersburg.
